Motorola VC606: Windows Mobile 6-based dashboard computer

Motorola has introduced VC606 — an all-in-one in-car dash-mounted computer system.

Motorola has introduced VC606 — an all-in-one in-car dash-mounted computer system. Emergency and police vehicle systems, though differing from state to state, most frequently run either Windows XP and XP Embedded (PDF available from Glacier Computer for one example) or Windows CE.

The most interesting facet of the VC606 is that it’s based on and conceivably be the largest Windows Mobile 6 device yet. In terms of in-car computer systems, however, it's actually quite small at 9.53" x 9.25" x 1.95" with a 6.5" VGA touchscreen. It can be connected to an SAE J1708 or SAE J1939 telematics bus to work in tandem with fleet management or vehicle tracking systems, and has a SiRFstarIII GsC3ef/LP GPS chipset, GSM HSDPA, 802.11 a/b/g, and Bluetooth 2.0.

Its wireless LAN supports WPA2, WEP (40 or 128 bit), TKIP, TLS, TTLS (MS-CHAP), TTLS (MS-CHAP v2), TTLS (CHAP), TTLS-MD5, TTLS-PAP, PEAP-TLS, PEAP (MS-CHAP v2), AES, and LEAP.
